We've already mentioned how jaw dropping the display resolution is, but it's worth noting that it has superb viewing angles too.

Armed with a 5-megapixel auto-focus camera, we have to admit, the iPad 4 produces some pleasant photos that are worth saving for the memories.

The 1.3-pound iPad's 2048 x 1536 Retina display is still among the best we've seen on a tablet — I'd say the best, but the Nexus 10's display is also pretty great.

Turn the Google Nexus 10 over and you'll find a big speaker at the top, along with the main 5 megapixel camera lens, which is also capable of shooting 1080p video at 30fps.
